Updated over a week ago

Video Explainer

This article will walk you through how you can monitor your students' progress, view and download their submissions, and view the feedback they gave each other. 

Student Progress Overview

In the top-right corner of the screen, you can click the focus button to display the assignment in full-screen mode. Click the three dots to edit the assignment.

At the top of the assignment, you will see the Overall student progress overview. Click on Statistics per active student to see individual students' progress. Here you can see if students have read the instructions, handed in their work, given feedback, the average time per review that student spent, the total review comments, and finally if students have read the feedback they received

Click on the headers in each column to change the order (ascending or descending) in which students are displayed.

Click here for a caption on the different symbols.

A white rod means the student hasn't started reviewing yet and has not been assigned work yet to review. To learn more about how and in what order students are assigned to peers, click here.

It is also possible to export all the student data into an excel file. This file contains information concerning student uploads, review ratings, review comments and grading. You can download this export by clicking on the 'download' button in the overall student progress window.

Step 1: Instructions

Here you'll see the instructions you set when you configured the assignment. You can change these by clicking the three dots in the top-right corner of the screen. 

Step 2: Submissions

Here you see an overview of all the students who have handed in their work, and which students have not handed in their work. For students that submitted work, you see if they handed it in late or on time. If the deadline has not yet passed, you can click postpone next to the deadline to change the deadline. If the deadline has passed, but you want students to be able to still submit their work, you can edit the assignment (by clicking three dots), and either change the deadline or enable allow late hand-in).

If you want to download the student submissions, click on download. The submissions will be in a zip file, the files in this zip file are named in the format [Student First Name Last Name] Original file name.

You can also view student submissions online. Click on the file behind the student's name to see which files they submitted. Click view to display the submitted work. Note that If the student submitted a video, you will see the video player instead of the document.

Step 3: Given Reviews

In step 3 you see which students finished their reviews, how many criteria they finished, the average time they spent per review, and the total number of comments they wrote. Click the headers to change the order (ascending or descending) in which students are displayed. Clicking on show criteria will show you a heatmap of the given student ratings.

You can click on the review progress to see whose work the student has been assigned to review and then click view to read the review. Clicking on show criteria will show you a heatmap of the given student ratings.

By clicking on the three dots in the review progress, you can also enable show ratings per criterion. Scrolling to the side will show the average of ratings given by the student per criterion.

Step 4: Received Reviews

Here you see an overview of which students have read all the feedback they received, and which have not (yet) done so. Click the headers for the columns to reverse the order (ascending or descending) in which students are displayed. 

In the overview, you can also see how many comments the students have received. When selecting “view all”, a general overview is given in the form of a grid (criteria) on the received feedback. When having enabled the self-assessment, a tab will be visible in this “view all” environment. Here the teacher can see a general overview of what students rate themselves.

Click on the progress statement under received reviews to bring up the following screen. Click view to display the work that the student handed in (including the feedback they received).

When clicking on view, you will see the submitted work on the left and the review on the right. The review exists of comments, listed per criterion. If there are multiple reviews given, the average ratings and the accumulated comments are shown here. Click filter to select a student of whom you'd like to see the review. In case the teacher enables anonymity, the students work under pseudonyms with other students, but the teacher can see who they really are.

You can also see the comments students left and you can interact with them by upvoting (thumbs up) or replying to them.

Step 5: Reflections on the assignment (optional)

Writing a reflection is a valuable step to end an assignment with. The student can for instance write a reflection on how the whole process of giving feedback went. The teacher sees this reflection in an overview in step 5 as shown in the image below. Here the teacher can see which groups and specific students have made progress on completing their reflection. Only groups of which students have made progress with this step are shown like the image below. When wanting to read the reflection of a specific student, clicking on “completed” next to the name of the student will give you their reflection.


If you've included grading in the settings, then it will be visible after the final step. In the image below you can see how this will look like. By clicking the arrow on the right or by the use of the scrollbar at the bottom, you can view the rest of the grade sections (from left to right). At the far right, there is also an 'optional grade adjustment' . You can add or substract points for each student.
